Peach’s Castle and Hyrule Castle Stages are Returning in Super Smash Bros. on 3DS and Wii U

super smash bros. 06-13-15-7

Nintendo announced a bevy of new information in this morning’s Super Smash Bros. press conference, however there was a bit of news that was easily missed.

Two new classic stages are returning in the Wii U and 3DS fighter: Hyrule Castle and Peach’s Castle from the Nintendo 64 original. While seeing iconic and classic stages returning is quite awesome, Sakurai revealed the new stages with a disclaimer:

“I don’t think we can add too many more stages.”

So this is somewhat of a hint to fans, perhaps we’re not going to see that many new stages added to the game on Wii U and 3DS? It’s worth mentioning the footage (seen here) doesn’t appear to be any different from the original stages – although we might see a revamp for each later?

What stages would you guys like to see added to Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS?

    the game’s in desperate need of more legal stages, at least the wiiu version
    why would they ever say they can’t add more?
    there’s still plenty of room in the system

    I added a small clarification there with a link to the video where they show the stages. They look the same IMO to the originals.. we’ll see though!

    That does look a bit weird. They’re going for the whole retro thing (aka we can’t be bothered to remake them)

    Nah definitely, can’t possibly be bothered to remake them. They didn’t fix a single thing. Between now and when they’re released they won’t see any improvement. /sarcasm

    Why would they have showed it like that if they weren’t releasing it like that?

    Because it’s already a drastic improvement over the original. They’re doing it to get the fans hyped and I for one am sufficiently hyped.
